Most of the time, our Main Hall lobby is an art gallery with work by local artists, UUCPA members or staff, or the occasional traveling exhibit. The Rev. Stefanie Etzbach-Dale’s show, Visual Prayers, which was originally scheduled for that space for June-July 2020, is now online.
Stefanie frequently combines her spiritual practices, her art as a painter and photographer, and her ministry to others. Visual Prayers is one such synthesis. In it, she pairs her paintings with verbal reflections.
Stefanie has served as a parish minister with the UU Fellowships of Bakersfield, Laguna Beach, and Redwood City, and is a licensed Interfaith Spiritual Director. As she carries out her community-based ministry of spiritual direction through her private practice, Tending Spirit, we are pleased that she is formally affiliated with UUCPA. As part of this relationship, she leads occasional services, such as the service “The Sacred Ground of Now” on June 14.
Enjoy the exhibit and the opportunity to enter into contemplation through words and images.
